observacious -- Because my many Google Spreadsheets have not satiated my need for tracking tools, I am trying www.joesgoals.com at the suggestion of boobirdsfly. Besides serious stuff like writing and working out, what should I track?
Gave signifiant other the Dutch Oven.
Saw the nerdy highwater pants-yellow backpack-two newspapers guy and/or shirtless Uncle Sam-hat guy at the bus stop.
Drank entire bottle of cheap Shiraz.
Spilled/dripped coffee or food on shirt.
absolutcalm -- Speaking of adult swim, if you could drag a Venture Bros. villain into reality and force them to be your best friend, who would it be? (personally, I've already ordered my Dr. Henry Killenger T-shirt and commemorative Magical Murder Bag).
Dr. Girlfriend. Smart, funny and genuinely wants the people around her to maximize their potential. Like how she encouraged Triana's friend to get into arching, or when she told PL she was disappointed he's strayed away from his true crime roots.
Mike Sorayama. His dedication to revenge and skills in animatronics and robotics would make him a nice friend to have.
Baron Ünderbheit. If for no other reason than to see what a real person with a metal jaw would look like, and just how freaky it would be when he takes it off.
Gotta give it to you on Dr. Henry Killinger. He's got it all: mentor, therapist, life coach, motivator, murderer.
haveyaseenlucky -- How many gerbils would be needed to kill a wiener dog in a fight, assuming the gerbils were determined and had the intelligence of the average human?
Not many. A friend of mine has a two wiener dogs and I swear they're the stupidest things I have ever seen. One of them sits and barks at a shadow on the wall all day, and then when the shadow goes away, he sits and whines at the empty wall.
This is a bullshit question. If gerbils had the capacity for intellect or organization, they wouldn't be spending so much time gallivanting around Richard Gere's colon.
Where x is the average weight of a wiener dog and y is the standard carrying capacity of the average gerbil, x/y.
The weiner dog's vulnerable areas (eyes, belly) are both large in comparison to and easy to access by the gerbil. With a good plan, and a full exploitation of those weak points it could be done with less than five.
pooplord -- Can my coworkers smell that I've switched to Burt's Bees natural spray-on deodorant?
All of them. June isn't really the time to start experimenting with "natural" body odor deterrents. Stick with the chemicals until at least November.
If the stuff is actually worth a damn, none of them. A good deodorant is one that is taken for granted.
The few people in your immediate workspace probably have noticed how lately you've smelled like you spent a lot more money on something than you had in the past, but they can't quite put their finger on it.
Smell, see, and emphatically sense. With a simple choice of brand, you have not only switched deodorant, but acquired a halo-like aura of sunlight, indicative of natural product use.
renob423 -- all my questions are cohairant. whats up with nutsacks who don't get my questions? did they forget about my lighbulb and car eulogy? or do they miss the extremely complex,overall content while looking for grammer and spelling errors?
I'm sure they make perfect sense to you and any other stoner in the room when you write them.
Nutsacks was funny last week. It's lost some of its luster the second time.
The lightbulb thing was pretty good, but no I don't remember the car eulogy. Christ, you can spell "eulogy"? but not "grammar"?
hinted around to the effect of your questions having some overarching theme or hidden code a while ago. I wasn't believing it then, and I'm not believing it now.
subbes -- What should I do with my fridays now there's no new BSG until 2009?
Get hooked on some of the networks' awesome summer talent contest game shows!
Torrent a few of the shows you always wanted to see but never did and make your own special Friday night lineup.
Pretend you're not a gigantic dork for a few months and spend your Fridays drinking or something.
Start TiVoing the made-for-SciFi movie of the week.
eideteker -- Was I really a worthy adversary?
I'M NOT WORTHY! I'M NOT WORTHY!
Having been the target of bust-questions in the past, I can think of no adversary more worthy.
I didn't mean to imply that you were a worthy adversary, more to say that the people coming next will be. Let's say you, um, paved the way.
You stepped up to the challenge. It's not a tough challenge, but most people are too afraid of coming off like a dick to take it. That makes you worthy in my book.
Also on the subject of the Venture Brothers, a recent visit and retrospectively ill-advised post on a VB message board reminded me why I stopped commenting in communities and on boards in the first place. Why?
I stupidly chose to respond to the guy who had written about 40% of all of the comments on the past few pages, but the combined length of his comments made for about 80% of the content on those same pages.
He opened his response to me with an incredulous question (Have you watched the show?).
He clearly didn't read my response, but used it as a springboard for another 500 words of factoids and trivia that demonstrated his true mastery of the cartoon.
I couldn't help myself but call him out in a way that probably has resulted in my comment getting deleted, but I haven't bothered to go back and look because I don't want to get trapped back in the cycle.
During this week's trips to the gym, I wore the following t-shirts: Killington Co-Ed Naked Skiing (only the bold can bare the cold), a Ren & Stimpy shirt, a Sandman shirt with him looming over Shakespeare, and a Stüssy shirt. If the other people at the gym were paying attention, what could they deduce about me?
I take really good care of my clothes.
Odds are strong that I have a Big Johnson shirt or a Hypercolor shirt in my closet somewhere.
I may as well wear a shirt that says "I'm Thirty".
I spent the early nineties as a lit nerd with just enough awareness of what's hip to try and pull it off.
After dropping $1100 at the VW dealership last night on a 50,000 mile checkup, replacing sensors that have been making my Check Engine light come on and a new fan belt, I have to wonder, at what point do you stop going to the dealership?
When the car is no longer under warranty.
After x0,000 miles (50,000 or 70,000 or something).
For certain things I'll always go to the dealership, but if it's pretty easy, someplace else.
I go to the dealership all the time. I haven't found another mechanic because I wouldn't know how to look/am not willing to take the risk/it's just easier that way.
Bonus question for car nerds: they recommended I get a "fuel induction service" and replace my throttle body casing. I held off on these. Should I have these done at the dealership or would some other place be just as good?
